Finding Books

There are two primary ways to search for books through the library.

1-Search the Catalog

To search the catalog enter your search terms into the search bar which can be found at the top of any library page and click "find." You will see 3 columns, click on the link for the one on the far left labeled "books & media."

Once you have done this the results you see will be book available through Falvey Library.  You can further narrow down you results using the options in the right hand column  labeled "Refine Search." 

2-Search WorldCat

In WorldCat you can search for a variety of things, but one of the most useful functions of searching world cat is that it will display books owned by Falvey library as well as books owned by other libraries. When you do a search for books the ones we own will have a green 
In your library VILLANOVA UNIV tag next to them where as books not owned by Villanova will give you the option to "Borrow from another library." WorldCat is especially useful for graduate students whose research may require them to access a wider variety of books than those immediately available through the library.
